Carlos Santana is streaming another song off the new Santana album, Blessings and Miracles, which will be released on October 15th.
This time it's a cover of Procol Harum's "Whiter Shade of Pale" with Steve Winwood on vocals and Hammond B3 organ. You can stream it on YouTube.
Carlos says he and Winwood were in London's Hyde Park watching Gary Clark Junior perform when he told him about his idea.
And Winwood says, “Carlos has been doing what I’ve been trying to do for the last 50 years, namely combining elements of rock, jazz, folk and Latin Afro-Caribbean music. Carlos’s genius comes in large part from a wonderful combination of rock music with Latin-Cuban rhythms. I’ve played with Carlos on numerous occasions over the past 50 years and I’m very excited to be working with him again still.”
Santana's new album, Blessings and Miracles, also features contributions from Rob Thomas, Diane Warren, G-Eazy, Chris Stapleton, Chick Corea, Corey Glover, Kirk Hammett and others.
